This is Jeff...I met him and his two dogs walking to the beach yesterday.The sun was just rising as we walked along this path quietly contemplating a new day..There was the nod,then the warm smile and then a spark of recognition that we shared similiar sensibilities in life without words.
I ended up taking lots of photos of Jeff and his dogs playing in the surf but this photo rather than a portrait summed up I think his enlightened spirit and view of the world.
I have a feeling we will be friends

Many thanks to David Lawson for the generous spotlight...namaste
